The Ghana Football Association (GFA) called for time as they insist a new Technical Director will be named soon.
The country’s football governing body Technical Director’s job is vacant following the departure of Samuel Francis Oti Akenteng whose contract expired at the end of March 2020.
The GFA have shortlisted and interviewed 6 candidates for the job. The six is made up of three Ghanaians and three expatriates.
However, there have not been any development on the process of who succeeds Oti-Akenteng which have left Ghanaians anxious.
According to the GFA’s Communications Director, Henry Asante Twum the need to conduct a thorough job has slowed the process.
“The process of selecting the Technical Director is over. The team that conducted the interview and went through the various processes are yet to submit their reports and recommendations to the Executive Council for which reason a decision will be made as regards the appointment fo a new technical director
I think they have done a thorough job, digging into the background of all shortlisted coaches and I believe they will send a good report to the Executive Council for them to take a firm decision, and then the general secretary would be given the green light to make the appointment.
I know people are anxious but sometimes it is good to wait to get the best out of the situation than to be in a rush and make a mistake.
I will call on the general public to give us a few more days to settle on this particular candidate for the job.”
